Inter Milan host Juventus in a highly-anticipated Serie A clash at the San Siro on Sunday night.

Antonio Conte's side have the opportunity to put some distance between themselves and the defending champions with a win in this game.

With a game in hand, Juventus are four points behind Inter Milan in the Serie A standings. That means that a slip-up from Inter in this game could prove costly in the larger context of the title race.

The two sides are in contrasting form in Serie A heading into this game. Inter Milan have picked up just one point in their last two matches, while Juventus have won three in a row.

Last weekend, Inter drew 2-2 with AS Roma, but would have been annoyed by conceding the late Gianluca Mancini equalizer.

In the week, they progressed in the Coppa Italia by beating Fiorentina 2-1. Conte will want to use that positive result to build some winning momentum.

Juve have been a different team in the four games since their 3-0 thrashing at home at the hands of Fiorentina.

They have posted comfortable league wins over Udinese, AC Milan and Sassuolo since, while also beating Genoa 3-2 to progress in the Coppa Italia.
